A new poll spells long-term trouble for Donald Trump


Clinton widens lead over Trump nationally: Poll

In her opening remarks, Clinton said, “It’s time for substantive discussions about how we protect, how we respond to terrorist attacks – like the one that tragically occurred in Orlando”.

In Utah, the most heavily Republican state in the last presidential election, a Salt Lake Tribune poll out just a few days ago showed Clinton and Trump tied, with Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson claiming the support of 13 percent of respondents.

One key finding in the poll that neither Clinton nor Trump will like is how voters feel about the candidates.

Speaking of the general election, a new national poll has Hillary Clinton beating Donald Trump by 12%.

Even when broken down by ideology Trump has a net unfavorable rating among self-identifying conservatives.

The presumptive Republican nominee spent much of the rally Thursday night at a Dallas concert space recounting his victories during his party’s hard-fought primary, offering a state-by-state recap. Bernie Sanders, a move that had been expected after Clinton secured enough support among delegates to become the presumptive Democratic nominee. In March, Feingold had 47 percent and Johnson 42 percent. Several Republican leaders have renounced Trump’s complaints that a the federal judge presiding over lawsuit against Trump University is biased due to his Mexican heritage, with House Speaker Paul D. Ryan saying Trump’s comments were racist.

In the CBS News poll, 36 percent approve of Clinton’s response compared to 34 percent that disapprove and 30 percent who don’t know. That’s virtually unchanged from last month, when the split was 53 percent unfavorable to 44 percent favorable. His positive rating with registered voters is 16 points higher than Clinton’s. Fifty-three percent of white people without a college degree have an unfavorable opinion, as do 52 percent of white men.

Clinton’s decades as a public figure and experience as first lady, senator and secretary of state are a double-edged sword with independent voters.

He told Politico that Trump “doesn’t appear to be a Republican” and “doesn’t appear to want to learn about the issues”.

The survey was conducted Wednesday through Sunday among a random national sample of 1,000 adults, with most interviews conducted before the mass shooting in Orlando, Florida over the weekend. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points and was commissioned by the Constitutional Responsibility Project, a group targeting Grassley over the controversy about the vacant Supreme Court seat.
